Chardonnay 2019

2019 Chardonnay

Our delicious Chardonnay comes from grapes grown at the foothills of the Santa Lucia Highlands in Monterey County. The 2019 growing season was similar to the 2018 in the Monterey area allowing for a long hang time on the vine, the grapes for this wine were harvested October 11, 2019. The deep straw color of this decadent wine hints at the zesty apple and pear, ripe cantaloupe and citrus fruits in the nose along with toasty almond and graham cracker, vanilla, caramel and butterscotch oak. In the mouth there is ripe apple, lemon curd, brioche, cinnamon and baking spices and a weighty, viscous finish that is anchored to the mouth with lovely acidity. Pair with miso basted Chilean seabass or your holiday turkey!
